This fund is for the Mar de Jade Family— the cooks, bartenders, gardeners, drivers, receptionists, housekeepers. COVID-19 forced us to close our doors but our arms remain open with the promise to welcome you again.
Thank you all so much! We are truly moved by your generosity and support. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to this beautiful little corner of the world. In the meantime, please stay safe and take care!
Dear Friends and Family,
These are challenging times for us all. As our world is filled with the unknown, the hard working people at Mar de Jade face uncertainty.
We trust the deep connections that we have formed and nurtured with you over many years. The smiling and warm faces that have greeted and cared for you and created this beautiful sanctuary are now asking for your help to take care of them. We’re all in this together. We need each other. We need you!
Mar de Jade is a socially-driven small business that fuels our non-profit community projects through the income generated by our services as a retreat center. As the world comes to a halt and all travel plans have fallen through, we have lost half a year’s income and are struggling to support our community. From our staff at Mar de Jade, El Jardin School, the Farm and TAO Trade School, we have over 80 families whose livelihood depend on us, in addition to the many others that rely on the vital services our non-profit programs provide. Unfortunately, there are no social safety nets in Mexico, there are no unemployment benefits, we are the sole pillar of our community.
We know many people may face hardship at this time and there are many causes to support. The silver lining in all of this is seeing how people draw together to bring each other up. How community ties become stronger, in spite of physical distance, and our hearts become a little more open. You know community is what we’ve always been about. This fund is for the Mar de Jade family, the people who make this place special— the cooks, dishwashers, bartenders, gardeners, drivers, receptionists, housekeepers. Any contribution will go a long way in making sure they have what they need to endure this period. The drop in exchange rate means your dollars go a long way. Anything helps!
COVID-19 has forced us to close our doors for now, but we want to continue being here for you on the other side of this as the haven for deep spiritual exploration and strong human connections that you have come to know and love.
With deep appreciation,
Laura, Angelica & The Mar de Jade Family
